A metro cop from Ekurhuleni committed suicide at his home in Vosloorus on Saturday morning. The 46-year-old officer shot himself in his bedroom.
“The facts are not clear as to why he did that because according to the wife he came back home in the early hours of the morning around 03h00am he was okay-drunk,” said Independent Police Investigative Directorate spokesperson Robbie Raburabu.
According to Raburabu, the metro cop woke up on Saturday morning, while the wife was busy preparing herself to go to a funeral.
As the cop woke up, he started to play with his gun and all of a sudden, he cocked the gun and he shot himself.
